A new year means new faces, new materials and new challenges for a team. Mountain biking might be an individual sport in the end, but the support structure around each individual is paramount. For the GHOST Factory Racing team, the majority of the team remains the same, but there’s always work to be done.
With a mix of five riders from five nationalities, the GHOST team’s cultural mix creates a pleasant atmosphere. Caroline Bohé, from Denmark, is in her first year and gives an insight. “The time we spent in South Africa was great. For me it was my first, long, time together with all the riders and crew. It is nice to get to know everyone in such a relaxed atmosphere without any race pressure.”
Tom Wickles, team manager: “We had a really good time in South Africa. Some of us started our journey a bit earlier with the Tankwa Trek race. The highlight was with the whole team together. Our new physio, Kim and new rider Caroline, got to know everyone and had a great time. We have a great team and excellent setup, so we’re ready to roll.”
